The Lord of the Rings: Galadriel by ThreshTheSky The Lord of the Rings: Galadriel by ThreshTheSky
Cate Blanchett as Lady Galadriel from the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit

This one's been in the works for a long time. Painting her crown nearly killed me and, if I had to estimate, took about as long as the rest of the painting combined.

Close-ups of this painting are posted here.

Hey! I love this painting, it's so perfect. I just made an instagram Lord of the Rings fanart account and I want to post this and I will obviously give you credit but I just wanted to make sure it was ok with you first? I love all your other paintings as well, and I would like to post those too if possible with links back to your deviantart account. :) Still, just... Wow. This talent is supernatural! :)

Glad you like it! Thanks for the kind words and for the +Watch. :)

Sure, that's cool with me. All social media posts of my art are good with me as long as you credit and link back to me. You already covered those bases is your comment so we're good. Thank you for asking!

For some reason, 'the pain that must be endured for the future to come.' Loved the Lady Galadriel.
